Critter Control Apopka

Best Apopka Florida Wildlife Control

Casselberry FL

Apopka, FL, may be the happiest place on earth, but that doesn’t stop nuisance Florida wildlife from moving to the area. Bats, for example, are prevalent. These pests carry rabies and easily break into attics, one of their favorite places to roost. Surprisingly, they only need a gap less than half an inch wide to get in. As their droppings pile up, so do histoplasmosis spores that can lead to lung infections. Bat waste also stains exterior walls at entry points.

Our focus is on removing the animal from your home in the most humane and safe way possible. We want to make sure your family is safe. We also make sure the animal is treated humanely and removed properly, abiding by the laws of Apopka Florida in dealing with household pests.

This is where our expert staff comes in. We’ve removed every conceivable kind of animal from Florida homes. We handle snakes, rats, mice, raccoons, birds and armadillos. Coastal Wildlife Removal of Orlando is your best choice in Apopka wildlife removal.

It was a hazy night, dimly lit by the light of the full moon. A thick mist hung ominously over the graveyard. Headstones could be seen peeking through the sultry fog, glowing softly in the moon light. All was quiet.

Suddenly, from one of the graves, a sound could be heard. It started softly at first, then ascended into a loud digging, grumbling, then a scampering sound! Had the dead arisen? Had someone been buried alive? Was this a scene from a horror movie? No! It was none other than the armadillo, digging around, looking for insects to eat.

One interesting fact about armadillos is that they have been found to carry the leprosy bacterium. They are not known to transmit it to humans, but they can carry it. If you think that you have an armadillo problem, it is important to contact professionals. It can be difficult to remove these stubborn creatures, but there are people who are specially trained for this task.

First, don't kill nonvenomous snakes. Any given area can only support a fixed number of snakes. If you kill the nonvenomous snakes that leaves a food supply that could support a population of venomous snakes.

Remember to stay a safe distance from the snake. Snakes usually strike about 1/2 their body length, but they can strike farther. You also don't want to trip and fall on the snake.

80% of bites occur when someone tries to catch or kill a snake. The safest thing you can do if you see a snake is to leave it alone. (It's probably protected by law anyway.)

85% of bites in the United States occur on the hand and forearm. 50% involve a victim under the age of 20. 70% of bites in the United States involve alcohol consumption.

If you have a snake in your yard, either call someone trained in their removal or stand at a safe distance and spray it with a garden hose. Snakes hate that and will leave quickly.

Step on logs rather than over them. Snakes coil beside logs in the "Reinert Posture" and might mistake your leg for a predator or prey.

Do get a tetanus shot.

Don't cut the wound - This almost always causes more damage than it's worth.

Don't use a tourniquet - This isolates the venom in a small area and causes the digestive enzymes in the venom to concentrate the damage.

Don't use alcohol orally - it speeds the heart and blood flow and reduces the body's counter-acting ability.

Don't use ice - Freezing the stricken limb has been found to be a major factor leading to amputation."

Remember, snakes have their place in the ecosystem and were around long before we arrived. We are the visitors in their garden. Snakes are quite capable of defending themselves, but are reluctant to do so. If you follow a few common sense rules you can minimize an already very small risk of snakebite during your outdoor adventure.
